Forum: texts Subject: Figures on Daily Uploads to Internet Archives Text Libraries

Anbody have any numbers on how many documents are uploaded every day to Internet Archives Text libraries?

From observation, I would figure a range between 100 and 1,000, but my estimate may be misleading because I filter out the court documents.

There's also the question of how do you exclude spam (escorts in Delhi, homeowner services in Brisbane, druga) in coming up with a number.

Any guess has to be better than my 100 to 1000 guess.

in 2012 there were approximately 1,500 mediatype=texts items added per day excluding the court documents.

Jeff,

I uploaded a video yesterday under Creative Commons and for the first time noticed that when the video ends it links to other videos in the Archive. Is this the transcluded items function?

well, we scan about 7,500-10,000 books per week.
